Exploring Ua Huka

Arboretum and museums

The smallest of the northern Marquesas Islands, Ua Huka is a place for the inquisitive and the adventurous. With two volcanoes, deep, lush-green valleys and plateaus where wild horses roam, Ua Huka is also home to the arboretum of Papuakeikaha where you’ll find the largest collection of citrus fruit trees in the world. The island has a surprising total of five small museums in various villages and on archeological sites. The speciality of the island is tapa, a cloth made from the beaten bark of the paper mulberry tree.
